Steyr 100 Around The World 1934 Reisch/Hahmann by Autocult

Promotion Tour Proves Reliability  

In 1934 Max Reisch (born in Kufstein 1912) was, due to his extensive motorbike rides into all parts of the world, someone of note in his home country Austria. Fully aware of his position he asked the company Steyr-Daimler-Puch AG for material and financial support for his next trip.   Instead of a motorbike they offered him a car for his trip; simultaneously to Reisch’s request the new passenger car Steyr 100 was launched and the opportunity occurred to combine the trip with a major promotional tour. These thoughts were personally submitted to the young Max Reisch by the company management during his visit on October 2, 1934. He took up the offer and had the rear of the new expedition car changed according to his ideas to a pick-up version. On April 23, 1935 Max Reisch started the long trip with his partner Helmuth Hahmann. Starting from Vienna they went to Palestine from there they travelled via Syria to Iraq, Iran and Afghanistan. Via Pakistan, India, Burma, Thailand and Laos their trip led them to Vietnam and China. After 14 months they arrived at their intended final destination Shanghai but they decided to continue their journey. During the passage on a ship to Japan and to the USA both men and their reliable Steyr could rest before they headed to Mexico. Finally, Reisch and Hahmann entered German ground after a passage on a ship in Bremerhaven.   Perhaps, only then, they became aware of the fact that their initial planned trip to China had become an entire circumnavigation of the world!

Production limited to 333 pieces of each subject, which often means that we get one delivery and that is it, so pre-orders strongly recommended!! Made in China for Germany.
